Quote from: Luke on July 22, 2023, 03:16:37 PMOf larger works, focusing on sonatas and similar, my favourites include all the obvious ones - Britten, Shostakovich, Rachmaninov, Faure, Beethoven, Chopin, Kodaly etc. etc - but if I had to pick three:Debussy - Sonata - perhaps the greatest cello sonata of them all. The soul of the instrument. Janacek - Pohadka. Radiant lyricism, both intimate and epic. A jewel.Brahms - both sonatas, early(ish) and late(ish), but the second particularly. Prime Brahms, what more needs to be said?
